Competition and Today’s Haiku

My human brother brought this home for Mom.  She immediately hugged him and put him where I can’t reach him.

  • a new intruder
  • try to usurp my cuteness
  • i resist and win!

He isn’t handsome enough or cute enough for a photo shoot with Mom!

October is My Birthday Month! And Birthday Haiku.

October is my birthday month.  Since I am a rescue  Mom does not have an exact date.  I get treats and toys all month.  Well this is true of months that aren’t even my birthday month.

I am one year old now and today is my last day of puppy food.  Mom has been mixing it with big boy food and it is almost gone.

My birthday Haiku.

  • I am a big boy
  • so why am I still crated
  • when Mom is at work?

 

 

Today’s Haiku for Terry, Gary and Roxy

Our church has an area where you light a candle for your concern or celebration. The rest of the congregation doesn’t know what your candle is for, but they pray with you to honor your request.

This is a simple haiku for a fellow blogger, his partner and their companion that came to me at candle lighting today.

  • live in the moment
  • a gallantly fought journey
  • destination near

A daily reminder from my companions that living in the moment is truly important.

Today’s Haiku

 

Roscoe

Hi! Roscoe here with today’s guest blog post and Haiku.

When Mom adopted me they told her I was found alone on the streets of Trinidad, a puppy of less than 6 weeks and starving.

I sometimes get scared of things I can’t see and Mom is real patient and loving with me when this happens.

Stormy weather.  Hate it.  I can feel the electricity in the air.  The room closes in on me, pressing me on all sides, choking me.

I can smell the lightning before it strikes, a smell like Mom scrubbing the sink.  Clean but scary, knowing what comes next.

Rolling thunder heard from miles away, louder and louder causing me to pant in fear.  Thunder I can feel in my bones bringing that horrible trembling that I can’t control.

Wind threatening to pick up the house and carry us all away.

  • darkness approaching
  • terrible unknown evil
  • trees bowing in fear
  • darkness descending
  • the pack howls in agony
  • sharp crack and bright light
  • darkness replaced by stillness
  • my once racing heart now yearns
  • hopes for quiet peace
